Written by darling on October 30, 2019
Former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, has called on the Federal Government to review Nigeria’s foreign policy in the interest of the nation.
He made the appeal on Tuesday, at the maiden edition of the annual Foreign Policy Public Lecture by the Association of Retired Career Ambassadors of Nigeria (ARCAN) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Abuja.
According to him, the lecture is timely, considering these current times of uncertainty in global affairs.
Also speaking at the event, President of the association, Ambassador Oladapo Fafowora, said the decline in the quality of Nigeria’s Foreign Service and Foreign Policy made the lecture necessary in order to reset them and make them more effective.
The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Zubairu Dada, was also in attendance among others.
The former Minister states categorically that Nigeria’s foreign policy is too foreign and has not been harnessed to ensure national development.
